Welcome to another edition of the Real Food Kitchen Tour. This week we're featuring Sarah Smith, author of Nourished and Nurtured
What's a Real Foodie?
A “real foodie” is someone who cooks “traditional” food. We cook stuff from scratch using real ingredients, like raw milk, grass-fed beef, eggs from chickens that run around outdoors, whole grains, sourdough and yogurt starters, mineral-rich sea salt, and natural sweeteners like honey and real maple syrup.
We don't use modern foods that are either fake, super-refined, or denatured. This includes modern vegetable oils like Crisco and margarine, soy milk, meat from factory farms, pasteurized milk from cows eating corn and soybeans, refined white flour, factory-made sweeteners like HFCS or even refined white sugar, or commercial yeast.
We believe in eating wholesome, nutrient-dense foods that come from nature. So we shop at farmer's markets or buy direct from the farmer, or we grow food in our own backyards.
This Week's Real Food Kitchen Tour: Sarah Smith,Nourished and Nurtured
This week I'm featuring Sarah Smith of the Nourished and Nurtured blog.
Sarah is an aerospace engineer turned homeschooling mama living in New Mexico. She and her family follow a WAPF slash GAPS diet.
She's only been blogging a short time but I think you're going to love her blog. It's full of great information, lots of yummy looking GAPS-legal recipes, and super cute pictures of her kids.
Blog Name: Nourished and Nurtured
Blog Author: Sarah Smith
How Long Blogging: 6 months
Location: Las Cruces, New Mexico
House or Apartment: House
Size of Kitchen: 10'X11′
Things You Love About Your Kitchen:I love the large peninsula that has plenty of room for me and my two little helpers. It is also great that the kitchen is open to the dining room and living room, so the kids are usually in line-of-sight while I'm working in the kitchen.
Things You Would Change: It would be nice if the kitchen was a little larger, especially so we could more easily get past the dishwasher when it is open. It would also be nice to have a pantry.
Favorite Tools & Gadgets: Immersion blender, Nesco dehydrator, gas stove, dishwasher, slow cooker, and extra large toaster oven (big enough to roast a chicken).
Biggest Challenges Cooking Real Food: Balancing time in the kitchen with other priorities is one of my biggest challenges, as real food cooking could easily take up all of my time.
Current Family Favorite Meal: Pork and cabbage stew, raw milk, and homemade ice cream.
Favorite Cookbooks:Nourishing Traditions and lots of online inspiration.
Here are some photos of Sarah's kitchen (with her comments in italics):
I seem to always have a little helper or two with me in the kitchen.
The big peninsula. The Nesco dehydrator, compost bucket, and large toaster oven are nestled under the cabinets, and there is a wonderfully large work area.
The solar cooker, great for heating up lunch!
Leave it to an aerospace engineer to figure out how to work a solar cooker. Do tell, Sarah, where did you get this contraption and how do you use it?
Pots, pans, the juicer, and kids! It's a tight fit.

Let Us Tour Your Kitchen
Are you a real foodie? Do you have a kitchen that you'd like to see featured on CHEESESLAVE?
Please email me at annmarie AT realfoodmedia dot com. Either send me a link to a Flickr set or email me your photos (minimum of 5, but more is better). Note: Please send me LARGE photos. Minimum 610 width. If they're too small, I can't use them.
Oh, and please send the answers to the above questions (at the very top of this post).
As much as I'd love to include all the photos I receive, I can't guarantee that I will use your photos in the series. I'm looking for creative, good quality photos.
Some ideas for photos:
- Show us what's in your fridge or what's fermenting on your counter
- Take some snaps of some of your favorite kitchen gadgets, or show us how you organize your spices
- Got backyard chickens? Send some pics!
- How about a lovely herb garden?
- Kids or pets are always cute!
- Try to include at least one photo of yourself, ideally in your kitchen
And no, you don't have to have a blog to be included in the tour.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Send me a donation via Paypal: email@example.com
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you need help placing an order.
- Work with me! Make money working from home, and you save 30% or more on all your hair care and skin care. In this post, I explain why I believe Network Marketing is the #1 Way to Make Money Online. After you finish reading the post, click this link: WATCH THE WEBINAR: How to Choose the Best Side Hustle. That takes you to my free webinar that gives you all the information on joining my MONAT team.
- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
